I started off as a closet musician mainly focusing on boy band music and then I progressed to the basement where I honed my craft until finally I wound up in the garage for years, producing below fi music. I got into the music industry 5 years ago working in a billion dollar studio. We were running 48 track state-of-the-art mixers into pro tools but I was fired after 2 weeks because I couldn't adjust to that hi fi sound. I would record bands onto my 4 track tascam and then mix them down onto the computer. I thought it sounded fantastic! But anyways.
I like writing songs on a deep, personal level. It helps me connect with the listener. Most of my topics revolve around broken relationships, lost love, tragic circumstances, inner feelings, etc. I've been in love 18 times in the last 3 years so love is on my mind most of the time when I'm writing lyrics in the bathroom. Sometimes I write the lyrics/ songs in the car if I'm in a real rush or if I'm being lazy I just write them in bed after I wake up. Right now I'm stuck in a dead end job oppressed by a system with no way out and the man is holding me down on top of it. Needless to say, soundcloud is really giving me the outlet I need to pull through these troubled times. That's all I have to say for now.
